With only about two weeks to go until Christmas 2013, we're going to take some time to enjoy our friends and family.
Dean is still working everyday, but the kids and I are going to bake, craft, play and laugh together. I've got them preparing a list – one movie and one board/card game to play each day, plus a list of things they'd like to bake together. And I'm thinking that choosing a new book to read aloud would be refreshing too.
I foresee lots of pajamas and snuggling (with the littlest one at least).
It's been a busy four years (since we bought the run down bungalow and then this house) and I wouldn't change a thing. But it's time to take a bit of an extended rest. I'll still be checking comments on my iPhone, but we won't be posting new projects or even working on any for that matter. Shocking, I know! (Let's see if I can do it!)
Before we “check out”, we thought it would be fun to leave you with…a huge round-up of our own Christmas/Holiday/Winter decorating and DIY posts!
You know in case you have some more decorating or crafting of your own to do! Scroll down for lots of ideas, tutorials and inspiration!

While we're “resting”, we'll share some of our fun on Instagram – so click through to follow us over there.
We hope you have a fabulous Christmas Season this year – and we'll be back in the New Year with more fun projects, decorating ideas and lots of other good stuff!
The Lord bless you, and keep you;
The Lord make His face shine on you,
And be gracious to you;
The Lord lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace.
